Partying is always more fun when you know you’re giving back to the community — maybe that’s why fundraisers and benefits are such popular events in Charleston. Once again, local artists Sht! and Badjon hosted a hugely popular holiday fundraiser to raise money to buy toys and food for kids in need. Presents From Punks depended on donations from generous local artists, and the walls of Mellow Mushroom were covered with their contributions, spanning the spectrum of Charleston’s underground arts scene. The organizers got their friends together after the show and filled up 11 carts with toys for underprivileged kids. They promise a bigger venue with more art next year. We can’t wait.
